Speaking at a meeting held in Ratmalana on Saturday, Colombo District Candidate, S.M. Marikkar expressed these views.

 “They are attempting to reclaim about 500 acres of land around Galle Face to build a port city. What happens when the land is reclaimed without a feasibility report from the Environmental Authority. You may remember what happened on the 26th of December 2004 when a natural tsunami crashed into this area. Homes were destroyed, boats were destroyed, jobs were lost, children were orphaned, the tourism industry was destroyed and you were left to despair. By reclaiming 500 acres the government is going to cause an artificial tsunami in Ratmalana, Moratuwa, Mt. Lavinia, Wattala, Ja-Ela and Negombo.”
